MONTREAL Feb. 1
"It is great that two major players such as ATR and Mechtronix combine one’s forward-thinking flight training policy with the other’s advanced technology to provide world class training to ATR operators", added Mechtronix President Hervé. "Besides developing a FFT X™ to support entry into service of the new -600 series, we continue to develop flight simulation solutions for the -500 series, a regional turboprop that is very popular internationally. We are really glad to contribute to the provision of high quality training tools and solutions to ATR operators and strengthen our presence worldwide."
The MFSTD, or VPT as named by ATR, configured as the 42/72, is a crew training device enabling systems and procedure training. The MFSTD’s will come with touch screens for an easy navigation on all panels, controls, indicators and displays within the flight deck. The ordered MFSTD’s include innovative features such as active systems schematics and 3D interface for key systems. ATR trainees will experience high level fidelity and familiarize themselves with the aircraft cockpit environment, thus optimizing FFS training time.
